A lovely campsite in the heart of the coromandel. Managers and staff are all super friendly and helpful. All utilities were super clean and to a high standard. At the entrance is beautiful flaxmill bay. Highly recommend this campsite to all!

Lovely campsite and welcoming owners. This was our first stop in NZ but 2 weeks later it's still our favourite. Spacious grounds, clean tidy kitchen and ideally placed for a trip to Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove. Thank you.

Camping on grass in what feels like staying in a botanical garden. Spacious pitches & the site is opposite a great sheltered beach.
The kitchen is basically catering standard with very clean stainless surfaces & sinks , full height fridges freezers and Bosch ovens!
The washrooms are immaculate , with really great showers.

Such a beautiful place to stay. We had a powered site for our camper van for 1 night on 24th Dec. $70 for the two of us which was our most expensive site in the two weeks we’ve been touring around the North Island. I guess because it was Christmas Eve. The facilities were also the best we’ve had. A very large site with beautifully landscaped gardens including large trees for shade. Quite delightful. Steve and Therese also the best hosts we’ve had. Happy and enthusiastic with lots of good tips on what to do in the area. We had bikes so cycled over to Cooks Beach and at low tide could cycle right along the long beach on the hard low tide sand. Good fish and chips at Clark’s Beach. Had a beautiful swim along the beach. Also walked around the Shakespeare Cliffs walk and rode our bikes down to the ferry. Highly recommend this site.
